The BBC has a new documentary out about Alexander the Great. Here’s what they have to say about it:
This May, the BBC and renowned historian Michael Wood presents the truth behind one of history’s most famous and enigmatic heroes in the 2-disc DVD set In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great. Combining popular history with adventure and travel, this illuminating documentary follows Alexander’s expedition where he opened up contacts between Europe and Asia and examines the political consequences of which reverberated down the ages. Wood also retraces Alexander’s epic expedition through 16 countries and four war zones, following as closely as possible the exact route taken by Alexander. This fascinating release includes over an hour of bonus features including Alexander’s Greatest Battle – Wood travels through Syria and Iraq to uncover the story of Alexander the Great’s decisive battle against the might of the Persian Empire in 331 BC; and newly recorded interview with Wood.
